About

Mireia Rocher. Barcelona, 1978. Since 2012, living in Sweden.

Art Work

I am a storyteller.

 

In my personal life it is important to have space to write short stories, poetry, practice free writing and read. My background in linguistics has definitely affected my artistic approach: through writing, performance and installation I explain stories that I find in ordinary life. I choose simple, everyday materials to address themes such as absence and lack of communication.
